Description:
The Jean-Luc Ponty Experience with The George Duke Trio is a Jazz album released in 1969 (see 1969 in music) by Jean-Luc Ponty on World Pacific Jazz in the US, and is considered to be one of the earliest fusion jazz albums. This was the third album of note for pianist George Duke.

History

The Jean-Luc Ponty Experience with The George Duke Trio album was recorded live in Hollywood, California in mid-September, 1969. A number of Jazz musicians were experimenting with the jazz-rock fusion that would become so popular in the 1970s, but Jean-Luc Ponty is one of the earliest to get it down on vinyl. Ponty was inspired by Miles Davis and John Coltrane to explore this new fusion form, and is considered the first significant Jazz musician to record on the electric violin. Later, in the 1970s, he pioneered the use of 5 & 6-string violins and was the first to combine the violin with MIDI, distortion boxes, phase shifters, and wah-wah pedals.

  • Jean-Luc Ponty Experience with the George Duke Trio was reissued on the Pausa label in 1980 and 1991.
